Deebo's amazing start to 49ers season by the numbers

49ers

Deebo Samuel is off to an amazing start in 2021, as these stats for the 49ers wide receiver indicate.

Only Jerry Rice has amassed more receiving yards in 49ers history through the first four games of the season than Samuel has so far (490).

The 49ers' propensity for picking up yards after the catch has been a signature part of the Kyle Shanahan era, and Deebo paces the NFL in yards after the catch entering Monday night's finale of Week 4.

On Samuel's 76-yard touchdown reception from Trey Lance in Sunday's 28-21 49ers loss to the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium, Deebo seemed to be all alone behind the Seahawks' secondary. Sure enough, a deep completion hasn't featured more separation than Samuel had on the scoring play.

Deebo will look to keep his remarkable start going against the unbeaten Arizona Cardinals in Week 5.
